Self employed people need self employed people

During the first few months/years of being self employed, it is easy to talk to friends/family/staff about your plans as everything about your new business is interesting and exciting.

After a while though things change.  Friends and family are pleased for you but as your business has taken over from all your other interests, they feel they have heard everything they want to already.  Being self employed becomes your job, your hobby and your future and so you have talked so much about it they have heard enough.

Talking to staff becomes more difficult as you start to make a little more money or success and this creates a gap between you and your workforce.  As the business grows you are no longer the 'under dog' which we all love to champion and as it so often does, money can become a bit of a divide.

I think reaching out to other self employed people can be a real help.  Whether that takes the form of networking, listening to entreprenurial podcasts or ringing your bookkeeper to run through ideas, I think it is important to make contact.  Running a business can involve making a lot of life changing decisions/plans and having someone to talk these choices through with is helpful and reassuring.

Here is a podcast that I have recently found helpful.
